Another new book deal!

I'm excited to share more news - I have another dogsledding novel coming out next year!

Here's the announcement from Publisher's Weekly:

Ann Rider at Houghton Mifflin Harcourt has acquired a middle-grade novel by Terry Lynn JohnsonSled Dog School tells the story of a lonely 11-year old boy who starts a business teaching dog sledding to fulfill a class assignment, but his lessons don't work out the way he expected. Publication is scheduled for fall 2017; Caryn Wiseman at Andrea Brown Literary Agency did the deal for world rights.  

I'm also sitting on even bigger news, but can't spill yet. Soon! 

For now, here's a few photos from our latest adventure - kayaking, snorkelling in Baja Mexico

No one knows why Grey Whales bring their babies to meet us, Magdelena Bay.
